The person we are to become is often evident from an early age. Without realising it, we often pursue the interests which shape our later life. As a child I loved my Mum's magazines, Vogue Living, House & Garden, etc. On slow weekends with not much to do, I would take these magazines and scour them for pictures of rooms/objects which I loved, cut out these pictures and design my perfect home. Strange for a young girl? Perhaps, but I loved this past-time! So, I guess I have always had an interest in interior style/colour/design, and that coupled with the time spent in my grandparents soft furnishing business, has probably led me to the work I do today. It hasn't always been obvious to me, it has taken some years for me to find what fulfills me - but thinking back on my childhood memories, it was kind of screaming out at me!
Just lately I have started doing the modern version of cutting pictures out of magazines, which is saving images I love from sites I stumble across! I love seeing how people put rooms together, the colours and textures used, the overall 'feel' of a room. Here are some lovely images which you might enjoy too.
My final message : Listen to your inner voice, it knows you better than anyone.
